You sometimes do not understand how politics move in your country or how did your president come up with a certain decision towards one issue. That is the importance of reading political books. To have complete knowledge in everything that is going on around you. Most of these books are very influential, you may start reading it with a different opinion but since the book is written by authors who supported their writings with facts most of the time you’ll think again and have a second thought or you may end up agreeing to how the issue is viewed by the writer. Every political book you read is different some attack issues seriously and direct to the point others inject a little bit of humor for people to enjoy reading it since political issues are heavy weight topics.
